Honoring Black History Month: African-American slave cemetery on grounds of DSCR
RICHMOND, VA —
As you drive or walk around Defense Supply Center Richmond, Virginia, it’s easy to overlook a landmark site across the street from the Bettye Ackerman-Cobb Child Development Center. Inside a small, fenced in patch of earth are the remains of six African-Americans, three women and three men. They are believed to have been slaves.
